Squashed is written and Illustrated by Meaghan Tosi. I read this with my 9 and 11 year old sons. They are at the age where they really enjoy graphic novels. The book is beautifully illustrated. I also love the story behind it. The author took her dad's home movies and created this wonderful story.
My Boys loved the story because as siblings they also have sibling rivalry. Someone is always trying to one up the other. So when a game of keep away with little sister's teddy bear goes wrong - the older brother sees a very interesting looking pumpkin. It's guarded by a trio of scarecrows. We then follow the siblings on a fun adventure that is perfect for the fall season. While this is geared toward readers 6-12 I feel that it can be enjoyed by everyone.
Thank you to the author, publisher and Children's Book Review for allowing me to read a copy of this story -- all thoughts are my own.
